Mets Merized Online:
Erik Boland of Newsday, captured some great quotes from David Wright who was being honored at the ALS Sports Award Benefit tonight in NYC. The topic of course was Jose Reyes, and the Mets third baseman didn’t mince words about how he felt about the situation.
“You see the kind of interest Jose’s getting…You knew he was going to get it, but it finally kind of hits home when you hear the different reports about him speaking to different teams and everything. You know that it’s a possibility that he’s not here.”
“I don’t know what he’s going to do but I know what I want him to do, that’s to be to my left next year. I’ve shot him a couple text messages here and there, nothing about baseball, but I guess that’s the eternal optimist side of me is that he’ll be to my left in spring training. Hopefully, the organization values Jose maybe the way I do. If Jose goes, I guess anybody can go.”
It’s going to be so weird to never see Jose Reyes batting leadoff or comprising the left side

If you are immersed in the Mets’ blogosphere, you assuredly have read the obituary that has been written for the Mets, since it seems unlikely that the Mets will retain their franchise shortstop Jose Reyes.
If Reyes leaves- it is told through many others-the Mets will be one chaotic mess. Expect the demise of the Mets to be greatly exaggerated.
Look, the Mets haven’t been...
With Jose Reyes set to meet with the Miami Marlins some time today, fans are understandably worried that the man they watched dazzle them at shortstop for the better part of eight years may be on his way out. People close to the team, however, may not be as worried….at least not when it comes to Miami. According to John Harper of the Daily News:

“I’ve been here all day in Miami meeting with them, just checking out the new stadium and the city,” Jose Reyes says in the following video from Contacto Deportivo, while touring Miami’s new ballpark yesterday with team officials. “We haven’t spoken about anything specific, but who wouldn’t want to play here with a new stadium, it’s always warm and sunny, it’s close...
Vince Coleman is remembered most for being a part of the worst team money could buy, who thought it was funny to scare fans with cherry bombs instead of opponents with his on-base prowess. While most of us Mets fans cringe when we here Coleman's name along with Saberhagen and Bonilla's there maybe a useful comparison to be draw between Coleman and Reyes. I'll admit...
In a post to Twitter, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says he doesn’t believe it’s likely the Brewers will sign Jose Reyes this winter.
Having said that, in regards to Reyes, Brewers GM Doug Melvin told Haudricourt “I’m interested in everybody until I know what the price is.”
SI.com’s Jon Heyman recently said the Brewers are targeting Jose Reyes, since...

What if there is more to the Jose Reyes and NY Mets negotiations than we all are assuming?
I’m guilty of one thing, I like to think outside the box and sure I may be totally wrong here but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible.
To set up my point, I think back to July 30, 2004. A day most Mets fans remember as the day they gave away Scott Kazmir.
The Kazmir deal is pretty interesting...
Via MetsBlog.com, the Marlins may offer Jose Reyes a low years, high salary contract:
Yet Mets people on Tuesday privately downplayed the significance of the Marlins’ aggressiveness. One person said he heard they plan to offer Reyes only a three-year deal at a high annual average, presumably more than $20 million a year.
It seems to me these contracts make much more sense for an...
MIAMI -- A person familiar with discussions between Jose Reyes and the Florida Marlins says the team is courting the free-agent shortstop in Miami.

MIAMI (AP) -- Jose Reyes toured the Florida Marlins' new ballpark as a potential pillar for the franchise.
The Marlins courted the All-Star shortstop Wednesday with the tour and lunch on South Beach, team president David Samson said on his weekly radio show on WAXY-AM.
"We're interested in making our team better," Samson said. "To be interested, you have...
